Decouple folder creation from RDF


(MailNews Core :: Backend, defect)

Not set


(Not tracked)

Thunderbird 71.0


(Reporter: benc, Assigned: benc)




(1 file, 1 obsolete file)

Folders are currently constructed by looking up the correct nsIFactory and calling createInstance().

The factories all have the form";1?name=" + scheme, which kind of implies they're registered as part of the RDF system.
They need to be freed from any RDF entanglements.

Blocks: mail-killrdf
Depends on: 1527764

My patch(es) for Bug 1527764 will move the folder creation into the folder-lookup-service, so easiest to wait until that stuff lands before worrying about this one.

Assignee: nobody → benc

This patch builds on top of the two RDF-removal patches in Bug 1527764.
It just shuffles about some naming to get folder creation out of the RDF code.

Declare it const while there.

So this is waiting for bug 1527764 which is waiting for bug 1534163 which is ready now, right? So how about rebasing everything as necessary and doing a final try run?

To apply on top of the two patches in Bug 1527764.
